Blessings of God’s Comfort! Prayer requests?
Matthew 5:16, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
Last year, we purchased four bright red Adirondack chairs to place in the back yard of the ranch house. They stand in stark contrast to nature’s browns and greens and to the tans and beiges of the ranch house stone. And, they are as comfortable as they appear. Snuggle down into one and feel your muscles begin to unwind and your breath deepen. Then, close your eyes and listen to nature’s chorus – the chirps and caws of nesting birds, gentle breezes through cedar branches and soft mooing from nearby cows. The experience absolutely transforms!
As Christians, we too, stand in stark contrast with the world or … we should. With God’s truth we can offer the world His divine comfort, His consolation, the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t blend in so well that no one knows for Whom and what you stand. Be His light and yes, even be that red chair for those in need. Invite others to the experience that eternally transforms the heart, mind and soul.
